My latest projects: fabric journal covers. Actually, the patchwork journal cover on the far left of this upper photo (the one with linen + flower + dots) is made by me a few weeks ago which was posted on this post, so this week I made the remaining two covers.
I will be donating all of these journal covers to the Write It Out Project, organized by a wonderful lady, Alida L. She is organizing this Project for those who lost their husbands at war... She is collecting handmade journals for the grieving military widows, and she even posted on her blog an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make the journal covers. According to Alida, journal writing help the grieving souls in the difficult times... Please go and check out her post if you are interested. Her story is very touching.
On the other hand I wanted to show you what we received in our mail today! This was a surprise gift from my dear blog friend, Sam of Sunnysidey, and it was not for me, but for my ten year old daughter Lisa, who just picked up embroidery recently and enjoys it with great pride...
The gift is a glow-in-the-dark embroidery threads that Lisa wanted ever since we saw them on Sam's beautiful embroidery work recently. Thank you so much, Sam, for your kindness and generousity. You won't believe how our young embroiderer was delighted to receive such a wonderful gift!!!
And these glow-in-the-dark threads REALLY glows in the dark!! WOW!!
